It is no more secret that Nigerians love swallow foods. Swallow foods in Nigeria ranges from Eba, Fufu, Amala, Pounded yam, Semovita and corn flour. Nigeria with a population of 140million (2006 Census) depends mainly on swallow foods. Our people love swallow to the point that they are unable to regulate the amount of starch intake. All efforts by health and dietitians to get our people to reduce the rate at which they consume these foods seem not to be yielding results.
With constant consuming of these swallows, there are always deposits of starch that even though small, a cumulative effect is a major health concern. High cumulative of these can and lead to DIABETES. From W.H.O report, statistics shows that 60% of death arising from non-communicable diseases in Nigeria now is caused by chronic disease such as DIABETES and HEART FAILURE. Patience with DIABETES suffers disabilities like amputation of limbs, impotence, kidney failures and still births.
There is also problem of High Cholesterol among Nigerians. High Cholesterol (Bad Cholesterol(LDL) also leads to deadly disease like high blood pressure and heart failure .Most of the foods which we eat that is supposed to help to keep our Cholesterol in check are not doing that.
Health Reform foundation of Nigeria (2015) stated that diabetes tops the list of cause of deaths arising from non-communicable diseases. For some that are so lucky by not developing diabetes, they tend to gain so much weight.
In a way to solve these issue enumerated here, Health professionals and Dieticians introduced wheat which is very good for diabetes patients. Wheat has more fiber when compared with our regular Nigeria swallows. Wheat also has a beter glucan than our normal swallows.
However wheat still lacks nutrients which will help to regulate our blood sugar level. Further studies have shown that there is another product which is far better than wheat. This is where our new product comes in.

A daily serving of whole oats rich in soluble fiber can reduce hypertension, or high blood pressure, and so reduce the need for anti-hypertensive medication
